Subaru Shares the Love

Subaru of El Cajon provided 80 beautiful blue blankets to the men, women, and children that reside at East County Transitional Living Center.

As the season changes and the cooler weather begins the need for warm clothing becomes very important to the folks that come to us seeking assistance. This year, more than any other since our beginning in 2009, the number of families and singles facing homelessness has been overwhelming. Due to the impact of the COVID restrictions, many families and singles have lost employment, housing, or savings and have found themselves homeless.

Friends, family, and even hotels are unwilling or unable to accept the risks of hosting anyone that may be contagious or unable to contribute. Shelters are sometimes the only options left and they are filling up quickly, many having waiting lists of hundreds of families. ECTLC strives to provide our program members with all the necessities and donations such as these blankets are very welcome.

Our mission is to provide transitional housing and restore lives and it is critical to the success of our programs to have partners such as Subaru of El Cajon to assist us in meeting the needs of those we serve.
